New Beginnings in Hevron Hills

The Hevron area town of Negohot continues to grow with a new neighborhood and synagogue. More than 1,000 people came out Sunday to an event celebrating the new projects.

David Yeberbaum laid the cornerstone for the synagogue, which is to replace the temporary structures that have served as prayer halls until now. Yeberbaum is the father of Eyal Yeberbaum, who was murdered in a 2003 PA terrorist attack along with infant Shaked Avraham.

Community leader Avner Shamir related Negohot’s history, detailing its transition from a small military outpost to a growing community. The town is currently home to more than 40 families.

“Today we enter a new stage, with a building project, buying groups and investors. Because we believe, and those who believe are not afraid,” he declared.

Negohot is located in the Hevron hills, a short drive from the city of Kiryat Gat. Its location along Highway 6 has helped its development.
